UltimateMama is all about routine and when it gets broken with holiday school break she knows she must keep her little ones busy! Wherever you live, you can always find something fun and constructive to do with your children.  Both you and your young ones will love the bonding experience. 

A few ideas:

– Story time at your local public library or book store.

– Bake together — banana muffins are always yummy, easy and fun.

– Make a meal together (like pancakes, fancy sandwiches, or soup).

– Hit the museums you always wanted to go to but never had the time.

– Go to a toy train show or antique doll show. For all of you in the metro New York area, the New York Botanical Garden has a terrific train show. 

– See a ballet (The Nutcracker is fun for both boys and girls).

– Attend a musical performance.

– Create an art project that you would normally not do involving many messy supplies (such as paint, glue, glitter.  UltimateMama's children love to paint clean seashells that we collected in the Hamptons or Nantucket over the summer)

– Volunteer with your children at a soup kitchen or another worthwhile place.

– Visit friends you haven't seen in a while. Organize playdates with kids who do not attend the same school. 

– Go to an aquarium. UltimateMama loves The Maritime Aquarium in South Norwalk, CT.

– Have lunch at a pizzeria. 

– Arrange a tea party for dolls.
